Happy Pink Saturday!

Sophie wouldn't get up from her nap to model her new pink bows as usual!

A couple of weeks ago I won this adorable lamp on Ebay from a very sweet seller.  Her name on Ebay is flowerartgirl71 and she has some really cute things being offered.  

Cute isn't it?

Another Ebay treasure!

Some of the cute cupcake wrappers I've found recently.  

Pretty David Austin rose!
Elizabeth Taylor
Baby Grand miniature rose!
Another David Austin rose!

Hope you all have a great weekend.  I'll be spending mine between the softball field and baseball field watching my grandkids play!  Don't forget my giveaway ends April 30th if you haven't entered you still have time.  Just leave me a comment on the giveaway post.  Happy Pink Saturday to all of you.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Before I share my Pink Saturday post with you I would like to thank you for the get well wishes.  I really appreciate them.  I told you how I am so bad with going to the doctor but this time I knew I couldn't shake this without his help.  Well, wouldn't you know when I finally go to the doctor I get a drug that gives me a severe case of hives!  You know you're in trouble when calamine lotion becomes your new best friend!  Anyway, in between itching and scratching and no sleep I have been making picture frames to list on Rose Cottage Chic web site.  I thought you might like a peek at them.  
In case you missed my post on April 12th my blog turned one yr. old!  In honor of that special day I am having a birthday giveaway.  Make you enter for a chance to win the pretty towel I embroidered.  I am so excited to say I reached 200 followers today!  I will have to add a special something to the giveaway to celebrate!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone and thank you for visiting me today!  Please visit Beverley at How Sweet The Sound for all the wonderful Pink Saturday posts.

Shortly after I posted this and bragged about my 200 followers I see someone has left me. :(

My Blog Is One Year Old Today...Birthday Giveaway!

I can hardly believe a year ago today I began this very amazing journey with all of you.  I have met the sweetest and the most super talented ladies I would never have the pleasure of knowing otherwise.  The first thing I do every morning after I make my coffee is sit down and see what is new in blogland. It's such a great way to start my day!  I love seeing your homes and your beautiful gardens.  I love hearing about your families and your travels and I thank you for letting me share mine with you.  I've had so much fun participating in events like Tea Cup Tuesday, Mosaic Monday, Stephanie's Bridal Party and Pink Saturday.

In honor of my blog's birthday and to thank all of you for such a fun year I am having a giveaway.  I embroidered a pretty towel just for you.

All you have to do to enter is be a follower and leave me a comment on this post letting me know for your first entry.  If you post the the giveaway link( located on the top right of my sidebar) on your blog that will give you another entry and come back and let me know you did.  Thank you so much and good luck to everyone!  Can't wait to see who wins the pretty towel.

Happy Pink Saturday!

I am in week three with this rotten bug I caught!  I did finally go to the doctor which is a sure indication I didn't feel well.  Even though I have a very nice and cute doctor it's not my favorite place to go.  He put me on a strong antibiotic that has so many instructions I have to keep reading the paper before I take the silly thing. lol  I still don't have my voice completely back and it seems to be getter lower and lower.  Pretty soon I'm going to sound like Scotty on American Idol...only I can't sing!  

Since Easter is just around the corner I thought I would share some of my bunnies with you. I'm saving the rest for next weeks post.  I love them in any shape or form. My house is always ready for Easter I guess because I leave my bunnies out all year long.   I used to have real ones too!  They are the sweetest little things but a little bit fragile.  It's way to hot where I live now to even consider having bunnies.  

I bought the first two from a local store that has since gone out of business. 
I can't remember where I got this little cutie.
I know she's not pink but I thinks she's so cute with her blue hydrangeas.  
I've had this cute ceramic bunny candle holder since I sold Avon back in 1980.

Here's a little peak at some more of my azaleas in full bloom.
In another few days the tree will be a big ball of flowers!
Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure you visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see all the other beautiful pink posts.
